I am new to the world of scsi and would like to install two 80 pin scsi drives in my pc. These models are compaq 36.4gb 10K. I believe they are UW3 with Lvd. The model no. is either BD0366349C or 176496-B22. Basically I would like to put the operating system on one of them so I realise that I need a bootable scsi card. However, all the cards that I see seem to have 68 pins and not 80. Is it possible to use the drives in a home pc or will they only work in a server environment? If they will work what cards are recommended? Can they work with an Lvd SCSI uw2 card? and finally... I have absolutely no idea how to install and set them up, can somebody please help! (They will be used in either a win2000 or XP system).

Many thanks.

You should be able to use one of these adapters http://www.scsisource.com/scsi_adapters/internal_scsi_adapters/

You connect the drives to power, connect to the SCSI cable, make sure the SCSI ids are unique, and boot into the SCSI BIOS to format them and set the one you want to boot from.  Then when you install the OS, you hit F6 when it asks and install the SCSI driver.  Everything else should be normal.
